Salesforce and Siemens announced a strategic partnership to develop a new workplace technology suite that will support businesses globally to safely reopen and deliver the future experience for physical workplaces. The partnership will combine Salesforce’s Work.com and Siemens’ Smart Infrastructure solutions to orchestrate the processes, people and things that are essential to creating safe, connected workplaces for the future.

Key solutions include a touchless office with mobile employee boarding passes for building and elevator entry, and a safe occupancy management system, which allows employees to reserve conference rooms and desks through Comfy’s app that sends real-time alerts as thresholds are reached. Additionally, by leveraging occupancy and location data provided by Enlighted and aggregated within Comfy, including employee check-in and desk and room reservations, businesses will be able to augment their manual contact tracing in Work.com.

Combining IoT technology from Siemens with Salesforce’s solutions will enable customers to make data-driven decisions based on real-time data and create a flexible framework for the future workplace experience. The two companies will be the first to deploy the new solutions in their own offices, including Siemens Smart Infrastructure headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, and Salesforce Tower in San Francisco.
